Health Week 2023 at La Cabana Beach Resort & Casino

The annual Health Week kicked off on a high note as Centro di Desaroyo Humano took the stage to deliver an enlightening presentation on the vital topic of work-life balance. Their expertise and engaging narrative captivated the audience, as they shared personal stories and practical strategies for finding harmony between professional and personal responsibilities. The session emphasized the importance of setting boundaries, prioritizing self-care, and fostering open communication. Attendees left inspired, armed with tools to navigate the ongoing journey toward work-life balance. This presentation set the stage for an empowering week ahead, filled with wellness activities and workshops aimed at promoting overall well-being.

Health Week Day 2 featured a presentation by Igor Croes from Technodent, discussing the advantages of using EMA, Elastic Mandibular Advancement. Igor Croes highlighted that EMA helps individuals identify and address sleeping issues like teeth grinding, clenching or snoring, leading to improved sleep quality. By achieving better sleep, individuals may experience increased energy levels, improved cognitive function, better mood regulation, and enhanced productivity at work. EMA also promotes muscle relaxation during sleep, reducing tension and the likelihood of developing sleep-related disorders. In conclusion, the presentation emphasized the positive impact of EMA on sleep quality and overall well-being.

Our Health Week continued with an afternoon dedicated to a rejuvenating session of chair yoga conducted by Sophia Slegers. Sophia guided our associates through gentle stretches, breathing exercises, and meditation techniques. The serene atmosphere created an ideal setting for participants to unwind and reconnect with their bodies and minds.

Additionally, Centro Di Desaroyo Humano gave an insightful presentation on workplace bullying. The presentation focused on the different forms of bullying that can occur in the workplace, its impact on associates well-being and productivity, and strategies for prevention and intervention. Centro Di Desaroyo Humano provided insights into recognizing and addressing bullying behaviours, emphasizing the importance of fostering a respectful and inclusive work environment. They also shared valuable resources and support networks available to associates who may be experiencing workplace bullying or wish to report incidents.

La Cabana beach Resort & Casino has recently partnered with Centro Di Desaroyo Humano and introduced the Associates Assistance Program as an additional benefit. This program is designed to provide support to resort associates and their family members. It offers a range of services and resources to assist them during challenging times and promote their overall well-being. Associates and their loved ones can avail themselves of this program to access the support they need.

To wrap up Health Week, associates had the opportunity to prioritize their physical health by conducting on-site health check-ups. Certified associates, trained in health monitoring procedures, set up stations where associates could have their blood pressure and glucose levels checked. Associates were also provided with the opportunity to have their vision assessed and receive valuable insights into their eye health thanks to Optica Oduber & Kan.


La Cabana Beach Resort & Casino wants to extend gratitude to all the presenters who shared their knowledge and expertise, and to the TLC committee & the HR Department for their exceptional organization and coordination of the health week activities. Together, we made a significant difference in promoting a healthier and happier workplace for all.
